White Chocolate Isn’t Chocolate.

Saying that white chocolate is your favorite chocolate is like saying water is your favorite bourbon.

The source of chocolate is cocoa beans. Cocoa butter is the smooth fat that melts in your mouth. Cocoa solids provide that chocolate goodness (that can sift into bitterness as the quantity increases).

Chocolate is made from the following ingredients: Chocolate Liquor (made from cocoa beans), Cocoa Butter (also from the cocoa bean), Sugar, Lecithin (an emulsifier), and Vanilla (Milk would be added for milk chocolate).

For white chocolate, instead of cocoa solids, you use milk solids, along with cocoa butter and sugar. It’s way too sweet and it’s completely lacking that “chocolate” taste.

If you like milk chocolate, I’ll merely chalk it up to your timid taste buds. But if you prefer white chocolate, you’re nuts.

Thanks for mentioning nuts. They taste good with chocolate. By that I mean dark chocolate. Most things taste good with chocolate. White chocolate is clearly a misnomer.

I couldn’t agree with you more PJ. If you’re gonna eat chocolate, eat it right dammit. White chocolate is a bad imitator. It’s like serving Night Train at a wedding.

I prefer milk or dark chocolate, but I don’t think I’m guilty of hyperbole when I say that Peanut Butter & Co’s “white chocolate peanut butter” is the single greatest invention in human history.

completely agree. White Chocolate should just be called “candy.” 

Dark Chocolate is where it’s at. Not into milk chocolate, but it’s close, at least.

Evidently, given the lack of support for white chocolate this may be the worst argument on Argue Anything. And I completely agree, white chocolate tastes terrible and also has a weird/unappealing aroma … unlike *real* chocolate.

AGREE!! White chocolate is like calling a “blondie” a brownie. It makes no damn sense.

White chocolate should be called something else so that it can get the respect that it deserves.  Not chocolate, sure, but good white chocolate is still a creamy, melty, delicious joy.  It can make even raisins taste good, which is really saying something.
